NEVER BEEN BOWLING WITH A GENIUS THERE’S WORK TO BE DONE, NO TIME FOR HAVING FUN I’M HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY LIFESTYLE I KILL GALACTIC HERDS WITH MY CARELESS WORDS I’M JUST AFRAID OF BEING NORMAL, I GUESS BUT IT’S JUSTIFIED GENIUS, CAN YOU SEE HOW I FEEL INSIDE? HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING HEY GENIUS, DO YOU THINK IT’S REALLY HARD TO FIND A FRIEND? DO YOU EVER WISH THAT YOU COULD START AGAIN WHEN YOU’VE REACHED THE END? ALWAYS BEEN RESTLESS IN THE NIGHT TIME AND IF I’M NOT ANYMORE, WHAT AM I LIVING FOR? I’M SUPPOSED TO HAVE THESE QUESTIONS ANSWERED BUT SOMETIMES I DON’T KNOW, IT’S A SPIRITUAL LOW I’M JUST AFRAID THAT THE LONGER WE LIVE THE MORE OUR SOULS DECAY BUT IF WE JUST WENT BOWLING, IT WOULD BE OKAY HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING HEY GENIUS, DO YOU THINK IT’S REALLY HARD TO STAY IN LOVE? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE’S A GOD ABOVE THAT YOU’RE FEARFUL OF? HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING HEY GENIUS, DO YOU SEE WHAT IT IS I’M TRYING TO SAY? SURELY YOU MUST HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING HEY GENIUS, HOW DO I LAY MY HEART OUT ON THE LINE? HOW DO I LIVE RIGHT NOW AND LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND? IS THERE STILL TIME? NEVER BEEN BOWLING WITH A GENIUS.

MIDNIGHT HAS TO DIE TO LIVE AGAIN I ACCEPT IT BUT I DON’T UNDERSTAND MIDNIGHT’S MY ILLUSION AND MY TRUTH MIDNIGHT’S MY CONNECTION TO MY YOUTH YOU’RE INVITED TO THE PARTY, I DON’T KNOW WHEN IT STARTS BETTER BRING SOME BAND-AIDS, THIS COULD HURT YOUR HEART I DON’T KNOW WHY IT IS WE JUST KEEP MAKING RULES ABOUT HOW WE’RE SUPPOSED TO LIVE
